In the homeschool Bible curriculum my son is using, he (we) are memorizing I Corinthians 13. Every morning, we cuddle together on the couch and read this passage together: As we read out loud this characteristics of love again and again, I seek to grasp in my mind and heart and yearn to express this love that is so pure, so good and so selfless.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. I Corinthians 13:4-7
February is a perfect month to meditate on “LOVE”. The more of God’s Word that goes into our hearts, the more of Him that is expressed through our words, actions and attitudes. Although it seems daily I struggle to be patient, kind and practice the ‘does not's of love, I have a hope and belief that His love is continuing to grow in me and through me….and His love never fails.
